Favorite White/Yellow Cake

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup icy cold water (important)
1/2 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla (Madagascar vanilla gives a better vanilla flavor)
2 tablespoons lemon juice

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease an 8" or 9" cake pan. In a bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt until very light and airy, about 3 times.
2. In a small bowl, combine cold water, oil, and vanilla. Add liquid ingredients (except lemon juice) to dry and combine. Once the batter is combined, add the lemon juice and stir quickly then pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake tests done with toothpick.
This recipe tastes like a typical omni vanilla cake. It rises extremely well and is light, fluffy, moist and rich at the same time.

I can't wait to make this cake! it looks delicious  :)


This was a big hit with my mom.  She thought it was a little too sweet but still good.  I made a half recipe and made cupcakes.  They are light and fluffy.


That was the probelm!  It did not taste like regular cake lol!  However, in the meantime it does not taste like regular cake without eggs, but being a Vegan, Vegetarian, I believe it is a great substitute for cake! Being that it is a cake that you can abriviate so much with! All matters about health and wellbeing and what the body is able to digest!  I found it to be very sweet myself, but still again something that you can alter and have fun with.  Hey, maybe we will be the next Food Network Stars lol!  Later gators!


I made this tonight. Used everything but the vanilla and lemon juice, very easy to make. It does look very watery at first, so it's best to use a mixer like I did......I thought it turned out great :)

doesn't fall apart, yet are moist, A++

Of course, if your expecting it to taste EXACTLY like regular cake, it doesn't.
However, I actually prefer this to the cakes with eggs I made when I was veggie ;D

Sweet enough to eat without frosting (I made cupcakes with no frosting, they were still awesome)



Hi fellow readers/reviewers...........................JUST A QUICK UPDATE!  :)

This cake definitely tastes best the next day and gets better as it sits!  It has been 7 days from  last input and the cake is still moist.  Being I made quite a bit of it lol, for a heartshape, square and round etc.,! " There's alot of cake.!"  "And my husband loved and loves it. So that is all that really matters!"  This cake is the type of cake that you can really have fun with interms of the way it  could be baked...............coconut frostings, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, perhaps even ginger spice,  nuts, dried fruit like Christmas cake fruit, whatever you fancy, pieces of cut up apple etc.,.  So that is it and I will be putting this recipe back into the recipe box for another day!  Take care guys and enjoy making the cake over and over again.  It definitly is not a boring cake.  Lots and lots of varietable options lol.  Enjoy and have fun!


I've just finished baking this cake. I have to say that at first it didn't seem to be good, but when I cut and tried it... mmmmmmm..... I liked it!!!! It's moist and dense!!! It's great! I think I will be making it quite often now. My husband tried it (and he is a picky guy) ... he loved it! I have to find good frosting and try to make it with walnuts or other variations :-)
I encourage everyone to try this cake. It's really good!


^I guess tact isn't in the cards for VDay either. Sorry you didn't like the cake.


Absolutely disgusting!  I made two batches of this stuff and it was horrible.  I am a baker unless somehow I lost much touch which is highly unlikely!  I thr ewthe whole dang cake out.  So much for Valentines.  No cake tonight!  Will leave on the counter for my husband to see that I attempted to make a cake for us tonight to share.  Again!  DISCUSTING!  Too much oil and too much sugar! This cake is not light nor is it fluffy!


This cake was sooo dense.  The flavor was pretty tasty but when I took it out of the oven it was nice and then deflated! 


Delicious recipe. It's spongy, fluffy, tasty what more can I say.
